We are just back from our Amsterdam to Budapest cruise. It was awesome. I read here about the food choices were limited....well I beg to differ. The choices were fine. Usually 3 main choices as well as another standard 3 main choices. There were also choices with the appertisers, soups and deserts and the quality was excellent. The cabin was a good size for a ship of its size. We were in a Royal suite but I didn't hear anyone complaining about any of their rooms. As has been stated before you dont tent to spend much time in your rooms anyway. The demographic was as expected. Most were aged in their sixties and the ages ranged from late 40's to late 70's but age didn't seem to be a problem when it came time to party. The were a mix of nationalities. Still mostly Australian ( about 45%) with the Canadians close behind with the rest made up of Americans, Brits, Kiwis and a couple from Barbados The daily tours were many and varied or you could go out on your own. The staff were excellent they always knew what drink you wanted and were very attentive We felt special from the airport pickup till the airport drop off. I'm glad I chose Scenic and we do another tour with them in the future.

My Expectations were Satisfied and More
